One of the quietest midsize sedans ever built.

It used to be that people who were considering a Toyota Camry or Honda Accord wouldn't necessarily consider buying a Malibu, but recent generations of Malibu have changed that. Attractive styling inside and out, a strong focus on fuel efficiency -- up to 36 mpg on the highway -- and leading-edge ways to stay connected have put the Malibu back on many people's shopping lists. A smaller-than-average passenger cabin and lagging resale values are a couple things to be aware of.

Malibu Drive

A few driving impressions from our 2015 Chevy Malibu review: "Last year's suspension improvements went a long way toward settling the car on the road, and when combined with the quiet ride, the result is a midsize sedan that's well suited to long road trips over mile after mile of Interstate."

Consumer Opinions

Owner QCBCCFDU says the Malibu "...is a nice, comfortable, quiet car. Thank GOD it has a back-up camera, as this car has the worst back-up visibility I've ever seen. Backing-up would be dangerous without it. The highway gas mileage is good--in the low 30s--but around town I only get about 19 mpg." Read more Chevrolet Malibu consumer reviews.
